Always Plan ahead

Plan ahead with IQTELL

Today on our hack productivity comic strip, we’re sending you an important reminder.

Just when you think everything is going ok; things may change and ruin your day.

The only way to stay ahead is to plan ahead!

That way, you’ll always have a plan B.

When the conditions will change (and they usually do), you’ll have an alternative.

So when you prepare an action plan or review what needs to be done, make sure you plan a few alternatives ahead so you’ll continue to get things done.

  1. Reminds me of Murphy’s Law – What can go wrong, will go wrong.

    I talk a lot about contingency planning. PACE is a good acronym Primary, Alternate, Contingency, Emergency plans. Always good to have a backup course of action.

      The PACE concept is an excellent way to deal with delicate situations that can go terribly wrong, providing a few alternatives is great, but I’m not asking for much.

      …Plan B is good enough for me :)
